Yuzna (1996)

1996 - The Dentist - A superior slasher movie. As far as I know, no one thought to make a horror movie about a dentist before (I don't think Little Shop of Horrors counts). That, to start, is an excellent idea. Combine this with some spot-on acting from Corbin Bernsen and you've got yourself a surprisingly fresh horror movie. Yuzna's directing skill has noticeable improved in this film as well. He seems a lot more comfortable behind the camera here and the "crazy dentist vision" shots are fun. This movie and Return of the Living Dead III are the two that turned me into a Yuzna fan in the first place.
